In 2002 at the EMA she took the 2nd place after the transvestite trio "Sestre" ("The Sisters"), although she got the highest number of points from a Televoting. Finally in 2003 she won, and she represented Slovenia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, where she placed to the 23rd place with the song Nanana, sung in English. The Slovenian version of the song is called Lep poletni dan (meaning A Nice Summer Day). After the contest when she came to the Ljubljana airport she said about her bad placing: "We do not know where's the catch. The director of the contest said that 'we were the most professional team'...".
